Details about how the instrument was designed:
The plan was prepared by the Fondo para la Protección del Agua de Quito (FONAG), an endowment fund created to care for, protect and conserve the watersheds that supply water to the Metropolitan District of Quito.
The public stakeholders involved in this project are three ministerial-level institutions (MAE - Ministry of Environment of Ecuador, MTOP - Ministry of Transportation and Public Works, and SENAGUA - National Water Secretariat), three public companies (EPMAPS - Metropolitan Public Company of Drinking Water and Sanitation of Quito, CELEC - Electrical Corporation of Ecuador, and PetroEcuador - Empresa Pública de Hidrocarburos), two secretariats of the Quito City Council (Secretaría de Medio Ambiente and Secretaría de Territorio, Hábitat y Vivienda), the Autonomous Decentralized Government of the Parish of Pifo and the Province of Pichincha, the Water Council of Pifo and the Interinstitutional Committee of Cerro Las Puntas.
